In celebration of International Crime Month, panelists Jason Pinter (Grove Atlantic), Johnny Temple (Akashic Books), Dennis Johnson (Melville House Press), and Michael Reynolds (Europa Editions) join forces to promote what is arguably one of the most vital and socially significant fiction genres of our time.
International Crime Month is a month-long initiative featuring internationally acclaimed cime fiction authors, editors, critics, and publishers who will appear together in a series of readings, panels, and discussions.
In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Algonquin Books is taking part in several programs in conjunction with the Barnes and Noble Writers on Writers literary series. Algonquin’s series features discussions between editors, media personalities, and Algonquin authors that explore a particular theme.
Be sure to check out the remaining events this month:
June 17 – Full Metal Jacket Literature: Robert Olmstead (The Coldest Night) in conversation with Ben Fountain (Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk) on the soldier and how he is irrevocably changed by wartime. Moderated by David Abrams, author of Fobbit. This event will be introduced by Miwa Messer, director of Barnes & Noble’s Discover Great New Writers program.
June 24 – Short Stories: Rebecca Lee (Bobcat and Other Stories), which has been selected as a B & N Discover pick for June, in conversation with Kathy Pories, Senior Editor at Algonquin Books, and Michael Curtis, short story editor at The Atlantic, about the short story genre.
